September 10, 2019

The girls varsity tennis team was mentioned in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch article on 09.10.19, in a story about its sweep of the Metro League girls tennis tournament: "John Burroughs tennis player Lily Walther loves to face a player with pace. That certainly describes the game of MICDS' Journee White. The players faced off Tuesday in the No. 1 singles flight championship match of the Metro League girls tennis tournament at Westminster. Walther, a junior, won the final seven games in an 8-2 win. All matches were played with an eight-game pro set format...Walther's win at the top spot was a highlight on what proved to be a dominating performance by the Bombers in the singles portion of the tournament. Six flights of doubles are scheduled to be played Wednesday at Westminster. John Burroughs swept all eight singles flights. In the top six flights, which is usually the format in the regular season, the Bombers won 48 games and lost just seven." Read the whole article here.
